Sponsorship opportunities

Suggested amounts needed to support core costs of the space including rent, insurance, utilities, wifi and phone and web hosting would be in the region of £50 per month.

Our group sessions will include:

A group for the elderly, mainly focussed on avoiding social isolation, help with benefits, and fuel and food poverty issues.

Groups for young people, focussing on back to work strategies, maintaining tenancies and computer literacy.

Groups for veterans, for young parents and our general group, already up and running in a temporary alternative venue, Warm Welcome – which provides hot and cold food, a safe space to engage with support services, and various activities.

Sponsorship of any of these groups is offered – the suggested rate is £50 per week per group.

One-off donations are also possible, we have a shopping list of things needed which includes laptops and a wireless printer, paper and ink, and sparring bags for the planned boxing sessions for young people.

In return we will display your name and logo on our sponsorship board, you will be mentioned in our press releases, and if you choose to buy individual items like laptops, we will display your name on those. We are prominent on Facebook, and will give regular shout-outs to our sponsors.

We are expecting heavy media coverage in the weeks post-opening, as community spaces like this  are few and far between – and self-funded ones are even rarer!
